OP  6/15/12 11:32:44 AM#1

I pose this question for a couple of reasons. I know to grind levels most games you have to fight. Yet most games I have played the rp has gone away on mmo's hence then new title. What happen to all things non combat to do,and to become a professional in. Do games like these still exist? I do not pvp nor enjoy raiding. Should i just follow my gut instincts n just walk away from the hole genre?

There are no MMOs being made and get ready to be flamed because of these gamers think all the games need is to be action adventures to be a MMO.

What would you consider to be the last great mmo ?  Most mmos are made up of combat and story. Not understanding what you want.

That is a logical question. I am looking for a open sandbox, with more player story driven role play. so if I am not questing I can do other things. SWG when it first came out was probably my best view of a good rp scene. where you felt immersed into the world.

Sad but true. For me, MMORPG's were intended to be a virtual D&D experience. Now they are online console games. 

 

Our hopes rest with ArcheAge.

Maybe give EVE a shot?  If you tell me that you need to be some sort of elf and can't "be a spaceship" then you lose all cred with me anyway.  Otherwise, walk away for now.

I agree that mmo should be more open world seemless worlds instead of theme parks if that makes any sense to you ? :)

What's wrong with epic, action oriented story? With well developed character(s), of course.

Not everyone is hardcore crafter, you know(most of them do such things irl and Hence they avoid it)...

Sorry for sounding like a broken record cause I've said it frequently on these boards: most current MMOs (i.e. the themepark variety) are made for a target audience that doesn't like RPGs. Thus you get RPG-lite at best.

For real MMORPGs you either need to play the old ones or the sandbox indy ones. Look at it from the bright side: small population also means tight-knit good community. :)

I maintain this List of Sandbox MMORPGs. Please post or send PM for corrections and suggestions.

To be honest the only MMO that i've played that's worth investing in is EVE Online. I have not found a single worthy MMO other than EVE.

Sandbox games, like Eve, I'd recommend. Or there are the MUD's which I just commented on a minute ago. There are alot of RP options for non-combatants if you look hard enough (though it's a bit harder in games like Eve than MUDS).

UO, EvE etc. However, the only, new title, offering a kinda of a sandboxy experience is Guild Wars 2. Don´t get me wrong, the game is a theme-park however, you can really find many sandboxy aspects in this game, such as open world where you can do whatever you want and where you have the choice to head to the path you enjoy.

Otherwise, most MMORPGs are combat based.

I've only ever played real MMORPGs.  Where are the fake MMOs?

I wish an MMO would be developed where players could enlist themselves into combat roles in the same way we would do in a more real life scenario.

Picture if you will a game where players can't be soldiers or warriors without first learning and practicing the skills.

These games give players the ability to do everything right away and reward them with upgrades as advantages.

A role player might want to be a farmer or craftsman and not a combat character. The choices should be available, but if I wanted to just be a farmer the option to be that would be nice as well.

I enjoy combat games, but there are times when I just want to log into another world and just go about my business without fighting players and mobs.

Not everyone wants to be in this type of game, but there are plenty of players that would. Role playing should not be overlooked so easily.

If you want to try it out, a MMO called Vindictus. Hope I helped.

Well ROLE PLAY to me is not wuite what others call it.

We are really just playing a developers game,so the ONLY role play i get from it ,is to role play THEIR classes/character designs.You know some people liketo role play a jet fighter or a warrior or a space ship captain ect ect.

Leaving pvp out of the equation we have seen ONLY one design since i played FFXI.That one design is to have hand held linear questing ,that gives you loot and xp.Aside from soe mgames having crafting,there is really nothing else to these games.So players follow those linear quests until they reach end level,than ask for end game content,which really means isntance loot raiding,nothing more.Even the term Raiding is a bit quirky,it is just grab yourself a bunch of players and go get some loot.

The combat imo will always be the fun part however that does not mean you cannot add other elements to combat such as puzzles for example.I have seen combat presented in many cools ways,it would take a novel t odescribe them all.

Personally i would like to see a developer create total immersion,that means you craft everything in game.You can however start out with minimal magic casting abilities or throw rocks to cause damage early on.I would like to see  the enemies you fight drop the exact same stuff they are using against you.This means no swords dropping from Bears lol.

Archeage  coming out tries to create some immersion as you build your own house and ships/boats.You don't magically warp around you travel on mounts or hand gliding,boats.However it will have it's share of cheap game design as well.

All of the MMO's you've probably ever played are fake if you are under 27.

Im from the 80's when roleplaying was a charactersheet, dices and a with a game leader telling the story.. I'm not sure what you missing in the mmorpg's thats out there. But I have found myself a couple of times in a guild with the same roleplaying background as me and I tell you, it's a blast doing your own charachter development! Just goofing around, staying in character, and having fun with others that want to tell thier story.  I have done this with AoC and FFXI where I had a roleplaying dialog with other players. And that really enhanced does games for me!

I should note that its extremely hard to find thoose kind of groups though :-(

I have played a lot of games before, and of course everyone knows that with every game there are glitches that are unavoidable. What's good about Soul of Guardian is they are quick to fix these within a day or two. Other games I play took them weeks before even acknowledging that there is a glitch in the game.  sog.wsgame.com
